Hauntings, Ghosts, UFO's and Other Paranormal News
(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) –
Ghost, vampires and UFO’s, oh my. There’s
a plethora of paranormal possibilities in the news recently,
with new tales coming out of Nebraska, Arkansas, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee and around the world.
In Arkansas, a tale has emerged from
the Desha County Courthouse in the southeastern part
of the state where the bells don’t quite ring
on time because of a ghost. In fact, locals have called
the chap “Willard,” and supposedly he’s
been haunting the clock for the last 100 years.

back in those days who was sentenced to death. Just
before his execution, he claimed he’d prove his
innocence by assuring the bells don’t wrong on
time anymore. They apparently haven’t this entire
the full story here.
Nebraska’s North Platte Bulletin
has looked into a local woman who was hypnotized, recalling
not just one abduction but two. She’d suspected

her family’s farmyard, and she vaguely remembered
her house filling with and then waking up in bed. She
had always wondered about that night until her hypnosis
That endeavor also revealed an earlier
incident in 1959, where she was driving a little red
Rambler station wagon in her area, encountering two
aliens in the family pasture. At the time, the social
decorum of the day held that women didn’t go out
barefoot or in an apron, and she said she was quite
embarrassed to greet these otherworldly visitors in

A New Oxford, Pennsylvania man is talking
about his haunted home. He’s the writer of the
nonfiction book, "Pennsylvania's Adams County Ghosts,"
where writes about fingerprints that keep appearing
on his fridge, being poked in the back and having his
clothing tugged at.
That helped lead him to becoming a paranormal
investigator in the area, finding more weird tales to
stuff, and there’s more here.
In Phillie, the Daily News has found
a prof who refers to the city’s dark, haunted
past, and she notes how – not unlike the mythical
being itself - vampire culture there just won’t
Apparently, the town is alive with a

The newspaper writes: “Philadelphia,
for instance, is home to some spooky real estate that
resonates with the vampire-loving crowd: the Edgar Allen
Poe House, 532 N. 7th St., and the Mutter Museum, 19
S. 22nd St., which is filled with medical oddities.
(One of its most popular displays is the corpse of a

the stuff of much investigation lately by paranormal
Most notably, the famed TAPS guys (Sci
Fi Network’s “Ghost Hunters”) checked
out the reports of voices, footsteps and other events
at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio last year.
There, personnel have talked about a blonde boy wandering

to the article.
One college newspaper in Tennessee is
talking about an encounter at the Battle of Stones River

college students took to the area to go ghost hunting,
